The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted the class of 2013 on Thursday night in Los Angeles with an all-star concert featuring numerous highlights.
Tweets from the ceremony indicated that the people were there for Rush who has been controversially kept out of the hall for years. Those fans even booed Jann Wenner, chairman of the Hall, because of the perceived snub. One attendee said it seemed that there seemed to be twenty Rush fans for every one fan of everyone else.
HBO will broadcast the ceremony on May 18.
